Quick question: Do you use the word “I” or the word “we” when talking about your life? According to this MSN article
(and a new study published in the September issue of the journal Psychology and Aging
), couples who use “we” fare far better in their marriages than those who stick with “I.”
Confession: Even though Jack and I have been together forever, I’m still one of those people who uses “I” and “my” a lot -- enough that Jack has commented on it many times. Examples: my house, my dog, etc. It’s not that I don’t think of those things as being “ours”; there’s just something to having my own identity that I can’t let go of.
What is that? Is it pure narcissism on my part, or is it some subliminal attempt to assert my independence?What do you guys say
